Having problems with your Polaroid izone 550W Digital Camera ?

Izone 550 senses SD card, but won't accomodate or write to it...


\015 Hi Experts,\015\012I have 2 izone 550s, bought at the same time. one reads a 1 GB SD card no prob, as evidenced by when powered up w/the SD card inserted, it adds ~370 available photos. The problem camera also recognizes the exact same card (shows the hollow outline frame of an SD card, as does the other camera), HOWEVER, does NOT add available photo capacity. So even tho it has the card installed (in fact, shows the icon for the card), it does not add that capacity, and immiedately goes to "Memory Full", even tho there is a large SD card it *could* write to. I've read the manual, and gone thru all the firmware settings, the 2 cameras settings are identical.\015\012\015\012Ideas? \015

Answers :

I would suggest the format option in the menu. i posted the manual it gives step by step getting to the format option. if it works on one but not the other even after formatting in problematic camera. I would suggest getting a different brand/size. There's a 1gig liimit, but i am currently using a panasonic 2 gig and it seems to be working at its stated size. Although i haven't filled it to see if any problems occurr.
\015\012Hope this helps.
